  Cement Storage

Cement which is in the form of a fine powder has a tendency to absorb moisture present in the atmosphere. When it absorbs moisture it hydrates, and when subsequently used does not contribute to the strength development. Jute bags (gunny bags) in which cement is bagged are neither airtight nor damp-proof and do not prevent absorption of moisture. Cement deteriorates in quality on long storage.

Cement bagged in woven polythene bags or paper bags are not likely to deteriorate to the extent mentioned above. The loss of strength also depends on the condition of the godown. It is advisable to use cement within three months of its bagging, or to test the cement for its strength if stored for longer periods. Hence cement bought first should be used first.

Do not store bags in a building or a godown in which the walls, roof and floor are not completely weatherproof.

Do not store bags in a new warehouse until the interior has thoroughly dried out.

Do not be content with badly fitting windows and doors, make sure they fit properly and ensure that they are kept shut..

Do not stack bags against the wall. Similarly, don't pile them on the floor unless it is a dry concrete floor. If not, bags should be stacked on wooden planks or sleepers.
